The McDonnell F-101 Voodoo (nicknamed One-oh-Wonder") first flew in September 1954 with the first production F-101A making its first operational flight in May 1957. In September 1957 the F-101C became operational followed by the F-101B in January 1959. When production ended McDonnell had built 785 Voodoos, 480 of them were the two-seat all-weather interceptor F-101Bs. The RF-101 reconnaissance version was the world’s first supersonic photo-recon aircraft. The only major foreign operator of the Voodoo was the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) that acquired 56 CF-101B and 10 CF-101F. Primary Role: Fighter Aircraft.
CF-101B Voodoo 17450 was one of 4 ex-USAF F-101Bs (59-0450/0453) aircraft sold to the RCAF in 1961/62. No. 410 Squadron was formed in June 1941 as a night-fighter unit. The squadron was disbanded and reformed at Uplands AFB in November 1956 as 410 (AW)F Squadron and on December 20, 1961 became Canada’s first operational CF-101 squadron. In March 1964 the squadron was once again disbanded but in 1968 it reappeared in Bagotville, Quebec as the operational training squadron for the CF-101 Voodoo. On June 11, 1982 the squadron moved to CFB Cold Lake, Alberta and re-equipped with the CF-18 and became the 410 Tactical Fighter (Operational Training) Squadron.
